Jews in the Southern United Kingdom

Rosh Hashanah (literally translated: Head of the Year) is the Jewish New Year celebration. It is very joyous and is most often symbolized by apples and honey–for a sweet new year. However, it is also a time that kicks off a season of personal refection and making restitutions for the wrongs done the previous year. Pray that as Jewish people think about how they can do better this new year, they will recognize that they cannot fix or save themselves. Ask that they will cry out to God for a Savior and that they will find Jesus. Pray that Jesus followers will have many opportunities to share with Jewish friends and neighbors how Jesus has changed them from the inside out. “And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules” (Ezekiel 36:26-27 ESV).
